As the participants swam with all their heart and effort, the senior classes, who sat in the stands, cheered on for their houses with all enthusiasm.
At the end of the event, Mrs. Mallic Kumar gave away the medals and certificates to the various winners. St. Paul’s House came 1st, followed by St Francis House and then. St. Peter’s House.
